    So Flow hive is just short of 7 million or 1000% over target, at $ 6,800,845. I wonder how many years a "regular" commercial beekeeper has to work to get that sort of turnover? Of course they have...

  9. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    They have nearly 9 million dollars of perks on offer, I wonder if they can increase that amount before the 42 days are up.

  13. Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Re: Cellular Hive tracking

    I am sure your ipad is that accurate, but I wonder if it would remain so in some beeyard of the beaten track that has very little signal from the cellular masts. Why not send them that question, they...

    Re: Cellular Hive tracking

    I think the reason that they can't give you a figure on the accuracy is that it will depend on the signals from the cellular towers. The more there are and the stronger the signal is, the better the...

    Re: Fog or Vaporize hives?

    OA all the way. It works for me.

    Food grade mineral oil does not work in my experience. Even with Thymol added, its not effective. OA is.
